fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
Tasting at Papsø
Hazy light amber color. The aroma is a fermentation mess of vegetables, with iron, menses, dirty feet and puke. If I manage to swallow some sips, it gives a metallic and acidic caramel flavor, with vegetables and spices; dry finish, quite boozy too. Undrinkable.

harrisoni (13591) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle at the Chriso Gaylord tasting 09. Amber. Lasting thin beige head. Not sure on my first taste. A little pukey but it settles down. But still not good. Just unpleasant. Some hop on end.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2010
A Sim rate (cask at Pig’s Ear): Orange and apple peel in the aroma. Pear and nice citric sweetness. Mmm...it’s apple juice on a hungover morning. Glorious amber/golden colour with nice lace. Sweet but bitter apple peel with some tea in the finish. Sweet but bitter but tart but mellow. Mmm..I really like it.
